Reviews and Praise for The Volunteer Traveler’s Handbook

“Anyone thinking of volunteering in another country should read this book. Whether you want to volunteer for a day, a week, or a year, whether you’re a solo traveler, a family, a college student, or someone looking for a midlife career change, Shannon’s book can help you choose an experience that will be ethical and rewarding.

From how to vet a volunteer organization, to preparing for your trip, managing your expectations, adapting to different cultures, and dealing with reverse culture shock when you return, this handbook is full of practical tips and personal stories that can help a traveler prepare for a successful volunteer experience.”

Marilyn Terrell
Chief Researcher, National Geographic Traveler magazine

“Shannon does an excellent job of laying the groundwork for those who are interested in volunteering overseas. You need more than good intentions when you set out to try and help others as part of a trip. Shannon will help you manage your expectations, pick which projects you should work on, and get ready for your volunteering adventure. I’ll be recommending this book to all my readers who are looking to volunteer overseas.”
